MINN KOTA Riptide SP and ST Saltwater Bow-Mount Trolling Motors

Riptide SP and ST Models

The saltwater-engineered design of these Riptide motors and proven Minn Kota technology puts more power and greater control at your fingertips. Patented AutoPilot utilizes a state-of-the-art compass system that locks on to a particular heading, then automatically and continuously makes adjustments to keep your boat moving in that direction.

Minn Kota’s popular CoPilot remote accessory now comes standard on Riptide ST models. CoPilot ST models control On/Off, steering, speed, high speed bypass and activation of the AutoPilot from anywhere on the boat—all from the palm of your hand.

SP models feature a deploy-assist lever that quickly and easily puts you in pursuit of the fish. Simply engage the lever to deploy the motor and you’re ready to go. Top of the line ST models feature the Stow & Deploy system that uses fallaway ramps to effortlessly deploy the motor into the water.

The balanced ST motor design makes stowing easy, and a special master cut-off switch automatically turns the power off when stowed. All SP and ST models feature Digital Maximizer technology that provides up to five times longer run time on a single charge.

      Comments about Riptide SP and ST Saltwater Bow Mount Trolling Motors:

      The recommendation was for a 55 pound thrust motor. My decision to use the 70 was the right one. After fishing the St Lucie inlet on a heavy incoming tide, it proved itself worth the extra cost. Great product, at a great price.
